Openers Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli will be in focus when India takes on Australia in their final Super 8 game on Monday. Another major point of discussion might be Shivam Dube's spot in the Xi.

The likes of Sanju Samson and even Rinku Singh are waiting in the wings. Ravindra Jadeja has not been as useful with the bat as in the other two formats for India and hence there are a few spots to be discussed.
